A great and fun dress.
For me it was a little loose in the top, but overall the fit was great. It had just enough sparkle for the New Year's Eve celebrations.

Great summer wedding dress!
I ordered a 4 and 6 based on the reviews and my large hips. The size 4 was a bit loose and long for my petite frame. The material was also somewhat worn and fraying, and not as sturdy as I was hoping for. I would've liked to size down to a 2. However, the dress worked well overall and I got a ton of compliments on it. I'd recommend it for a range of spring/summer events!

Fun summer dress!
I rented this dress for my informal backyard groom's dinner, and it was a hit! The fabric and beading sparkle, and the blue and silver colors felt bridal. If you're small chested, consider wearing a strapless bra with some padding to fill out the bust a bit. I'm usually a 4, and the dress fit well overall.

Honeymoon Photos
I rented this dress for honeymoon photos in Disney. The dress was snug around my hips, but fit well. The attached rhinestones I thought were silver, but they were actually clear. I had no disappointments with this dress!

So easy!
Fit perfectly, very comfortable and the process was easy. My daughter told me, "You look like a grown up Elsa." My first experience with RTR, and I will definitely do this again.

Size runs very large for Lilly
I usually wear Lilly dresses and got the same size I always wear but this cut is super wide. There was no way I could pull it off the stomach area down was noticeably large and so wide it wasn't flattering. Unfortunately the size down was not available so I was unable to wear this dress.

This dress looked stunning on! I wore it for my bridal shower and felt beautiful!
This dress fit beautifully, even with a smaller waist and curvy hips! It hugged all the right places and was very comfortable, I even kept it on for a night out on the town!! I would definitely recommend this dress rental to my friends! I was complimented on it all day and even had people looking at RTR for the first time at the shower they were so intrigued by it! Great experience for my second RTR and I will be using this site again soon!

This dress fit wonderfully! I always check the reviews and they were right on. I wore it with silver shoes and they were perfect.

Color was great!
I usually wear an 8, but the 6 fit better. ( I'm smaller in the bust area). There were two strange horizontal darts at hip height that sort of had the effect of having some bulky underwear lines.

Dress to wear to an evening wedding on the coast.
It was very comfortable and stood out amongst the darker colored dresses. The waist, however, was a tad short for me. I have a long torso so it didn't sit quite right. But that was okay because it had plenty of room in the stomach to allow me to enjoy the meal and cake without sucking in the rest of the evening!

Beautiful Sparkle
This was a beautiful dress. I normally wear a 6 which fit great! I chose to wear the 8 because it added a little more length that I found appropriate for the wedding. Just a gorgeous dress with many, many compliments. I started out wearing with heels, later in the evening switched to sparkle flip flops and still gorgeous!

Beautiful shift dress, delicate beading
I really enjoyed wearing this dress. It has the perfect amount of shine. The beading on top seemed very, very easily damaged.

Perfect for beach front semi-formal military event.
Typically I wear a 6, but I always order the 4 and 6. In this dress, the 4 fit much better than the 6 without being too tight. I saw other reviews said the arm holes were tight, but I didn't find that to be the case. The color is more aqua than the professional photos show. However, that was evident in the other reviewers photos. Perfect be achy color, but with the silver sparkle it seemed a little more formal as it needed to be for my event.

Versatile Dress
I wore this for family photos then my son's baptism. It was great for both occasions and photographs very well. It's a little loose around the midsection but it didn't bother me.

Gorgeous Dress.
I had ordered another dress from RTR for the gala that was black and didn't fit right. I called 2 days before the event and had this dress overnighted. It fit perfectly and the color was just stunning. I would normally say I am a 2 in dresses, but they only had the 0. It sparkled just enough but wasn't over the top. The beading on top is clear rounds beads. The dress did not look good with gold shoes, I would definitely recommend silver. I received so many compliments. Thanks RTR for your great customer service.

Very different from pictured online
While the dress fit amazingly, it was nothing like the picture. The embellishments were much more sparkly then pictured and the dress was more of alternating strips of silver and blue instead of just a nice, metallic light blue color. I did not end up wearing it to my event.

Perfect for a spring wedding and dancing afterwards!
I kept getting complements all evening! The color was perfect for a day wedding and evening reception; I wore it with nude heels and simple jewelry. The beading around the neckline is enough but, it would've been lovely with a diamond necklace as well. Lilly doesn't disappoint when it comes to the cut and fit of their dresses! This fit wonderfully and the cut provided an hour glass shape that looks great on all shapes and sizes. You can wear with regular under garments and the dress, while form fitting, never felt tight even while dancing. I was so sad to send this one back!

Looks like your date's tie matched your dress, in the picture it looks like it might be a similar light blue. If so, do you know what shade of blue he had?

Gorgeous detail and bright color!
This dress was absolutely stunning! I wore it to an outdoor wedding on the Boston Harbor and it was perfect for the affair. The detail around the neck line was so unique, I was getting compliments all evening long. I definiately recommend this for any summer wedding.

The dress and the compliments I received.
This was my first rental. The dress fit very well and was very elegant. Nothing negative! I got the most compliments I think I've ever received wearing this dress! I definitely recommend it as it looks and fits great on any body type. I wore it with silver accessories and silver shoes because it had such a silver sparkle to it. I wore it to a wedding and it worked very well for the elegant affair. You won't be disappointed!

Very pretty, and comfortable!!
I wore this dress to a wedding and received so many compliments on this dress. The dress was perfect for an evening summer wedding, and the embellishments around the neck really 'made' the dress. You don't need a lot of jewelry because of that, just some fun earring and a bracelet and you're good to go. The skirt portion of the dress was a bit more roomy than needed for me, but the top fit perfectly. I loved this dress, was sad to return it.

I usually wear a size 10 but ended up wearing my back-up size 8 and it fit perfectly. Paired this with nude heels and silver accessories. Definitely didn't want to give this gorgeous dress back!

The color and style were perfect for the wedding I attended.
The fit was great, but the the dress does not stretch at all. I usually wear a size 4 in dresses. I almost went up to the 6, but the 4 still fit better. I would also say that another reason why I did not give it 5 stars was because the material doesn't allow much air to flow through, which makes it tough when you are on the dance floor all night. :) I am still very happy with the rental and would certainly get it again.

If you want sparkles and shimmer, this dress is for you!
I'll be the first to say that this dress isn't for everyone. However, if you're the type of girl who likes bling and sparkle, you will not regret renting it. The beading on this dress is absolutely beautiful. The stock picture is very deceiving - it is more of a light blue/turquoise color than silver, but there are silver inlays in the dress. The dress fits like a glove and has the signature Lilly build for a great shape.

Beach wedding
I wore this to a dressy-casual beach wedding and really fit the scene. The dress has enough glamour for night time thanks to the beading, but didn't look silly at the afternoon ceremony on the water. The length is sexy but still classy and my husband loved it!
